          Dear Mr. Schneider,

           

          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!

           

          We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the Files of the Military Historian, 1946 - 1963 in the Records of U.S. Army Operational, Tactical, and Support Organizations (World War II and Thereafter) (Record Group 338) that consists of 2 FRCs or approximately 6,000 pages. As stated in our response two years ago, the first FRC contains file units that consist of short histories (some published and some original records) of various units that were part of the Fifth Army from 1946-1963. There is no discernable arrangement to these files. The second FRC contains Adjutant General administrative files for 1955 that are arranged by the War Department Decimal File System. Unfortunately, we are unable to physically search the first FRC for the records you seek. For access to these records, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at archives2reference@nara.gov.

           

          Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDT2. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.

           

          We hope this is helpful.
